Cách Làm Bánh Flan Bông Lan / Caramel, Vietnamese Flan Cake (Bánh Flan Bông Lan)


The French introduced flan, also known as crème caramel, to Vietnam. It”s a delicate yet rich custard dish, with a nutty caramel syrup. As a kid, I couldn”t get enough of this dessert, which my mom made in little single-serve ramekins. I could eat four or five of them in a sitting!

Flan by itself is already an elegant dessert. This recipe adds a layer of fluffy chiffon cake for an even nicer showstopper. I brought this to a dinner party and the hosts were amazed by the layers. However, this dish is deceptively easy to make. The cake batter floats right on top of the custard, and it”s just a simple matter of layering.

You can omit the cake layer for a classic flan, or if you”re gluten free.

Flan custard recipe instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Heat the sugar in a saucepan until it melts and takes on a deep golden color. I like to take mine a little darker for a deep, coffe-like flavor.

I”ve seen some recipes that add water to the sugar before melting. I do not do this. The sugar will caramelize fine on its own without any added water.

Immediately pour the melted sugar into a 9-inch cake pan. There”s no need to grease it. The sugar will harden over time but it will dissolve again when you bake the flan.


Whisk the eggs and condensed milk together until well blended. Add regular milk, sugar and vanilla. Set aside while you make the cake batter.

If you”re not making a cake layer, strain the flan custard into the cake pan immediately and bake.

In another bowl, whisk egg whites with a hand mixer until foamy. Add the sugar and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form.


Fold the egg whites into the cake batter, being careful not to over-mix. This cake doesn”t have any baking powder, so the whipped egg whites provide the rise for the cake. If you over-mix it, you”ll beat out all of the air in the egg whites and get a tough, flat cake.

Strain the flan custard into your prepared cake pan and spoon the cake batter on top. The batter will float.

Bake the flan about 30-40 minutes. The flan will be done when it”s still jiggly, but a toothpick pierced into the cake comes out clean. If the cake begins to brown too quickly, you can cover it with aluminum foil until the flan sets. It will feel very jiggly when it comes out of the oven but don”t be scared! It”ll set up more in the fridge.



In Vietnam, coffee is sometimes poured over the flan, which brings out the deep flavor of the caramelized sugar.
